Back to Gibran List


Kahlil Gibran


I walked upon the sand at ebb-tide.

And bending down, I wrote a line upon the sand.

And in that line I wrote what my mind thought

And what my soul desired.

And when the tide was high,

I returned to that very shore,

And of that which I had written I found naught.

I found only the staff-marks of one who had walked blindly.
